After what felt like an extremely long winter, we've finally had some signs of spring this past week. The sun was around for a few days, I was able to go to work without a coat and my vegetables are starting to grow. My tomato plants are getting taller, my chillies are sprouting and the onion shoots are greener by the day. No sign of the wildflowers yet, but they were planted later than everything else so I'm still hopeful.
The arrival of spring has coincided with me feeling really great in myself this week. I live on a bit of an emotional rollercoaster and lately it has been even more pronounced than usual, with the stress of moving house, the OFSTED inspection and other stuff in my personal life. But this last week, I have felt myself evening out to content and that feels great, long may it continue!
I do have some great news to share this week too; I'm going to be a godparent to my wonderful nephew, who is now five months old. To be honest, I don't really know what I'm supposed to do in that role as I don't have any godparents myself and am not religious. But my sister and her husband are choosing to raise my nephew in a certain way and I respect that and will of course be ready for the June Christening.
This upcoming week should be a good one. Two of our closest friends are just back from their honeymoon and we're having them round for dinner on Tuesday evening. Next weekend is a long one, with the May Day bank holiday and I am very excited about the extra day off work, three day weekends are brilliant.
